Here is our review on Sight Lines Productions’ second play, Boom, and all things en bloc. Because really, Singapore is just a land-scarce timebomb waiting to explode with spanking-new buildings, no?
LIFE! Theatre Awards “Best Original Script” winner Jean Tay takes on a subject close to every true-blue Singaporean’s heart – Land. BOOM puts our property woes into perspective, through tales we have been familiar with. The ageing heartlander (Fanny Kee) – unwilling to sell the home she has grown to love. The conniving property agent (Andrew Lua) – eager to make a quick buck and the idealistic civil servant (Erwin Shah Ismail) – assigned with the herculean task of relocating graves.
